Saturday evening, he had abundant low, thick clouds scudding in off the Bay. Not unusual. Less common: The air was warm and felt very wet. That gave way Sunday morning to very heavy dew. (The shorthand physical explanation: the air was near saturation with water and when the temperature fell to the “dew point” — in the mid-50s that night, I think — the water in the air was deposited on cars, lawns, and what have you.) On our way back from our usual Sunday morning walk down to the old Santa Fe right-of-way, Kate noticed a patch of grass in one yard on Rose Street, each stalk covered with beads of water. So–that’s where these pictures came from. (Click for larger versions.)

Images shot through dewdrops is a whole fascinating field of photography. I’m usually not up and out for it early enough … not that I’ve had any luck with it anyway. Very nicely done, Dan.
Thanks, Rob. I was wondering whether passers-by would find it alarming to encounter me lying on the sidewalk taking pictures. But no one passed by. …
